This wonderful guitar was made by ‘Petitjean’, one of the best and most famous guitar workshops of those times in Mirecourt. Already in 1800 the family was engaged in the production of musical instruments. The workshop was most likely operated by many members of the family. The guitars were labelled with different manufacturer names like for example ‘Petitjean L’ainé à Paris’ (like in this particular case), ‘Petitjean à Mirecourt’ and ‘Petitjean’. The innovation of the ‘Petitjean’ workshops was that guitars were no longer constructed with a two-piece back but rather with one-piece backs which consisted of solid wood or veneers. In addition to that, valuable precious woods like Brazilian rosewood were processed. The shown guitar is very precisely processed and has a top consisting of finely grained spruce wood. The top’s frame as well as the soundhole is decorated with mother of pearl. This decoration made of mother of pearl can also be found on the sides of the saddle. The back and the ribs of this guitar are made of solid Ash Burr. The guitar is in very good playable condition
